News on The 700 Club: September 14, 2016

As seen on "The 700 Club," September 14: 'Six weeks paid maternity leave.' Trump woos women, working families; Army will cover gender reassignment surgery for former Army analyst, and more. Read Transcript


Donald Trump is reaching out to women voters

and working families.

He's offering a new plan for childcare

that includes tax incentives and paid maternity leave.

And he says he can pay for it by cutting government waste.

Hillary Clinton is planning to get back on the campaign trail

tomorrow.

But she's facing still more controversy

over her email scandal.

Dale Hurd has the story.

DALE HURD: Trump has unveiled a plan aimed at making

child care more affordable.

It would guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave to workers

whose employers don't offer leave already.

We can provide six weeks of paid maternity leave

to any mother with a newborn child whose employer does not

provide the benefit.

The plan would seem to break with conservative orthodoxy.

But it's been endorsed by the Conservative Family Research

Council.

Trump claims it could be paid for by recouping

the cost of welfare fraud estimated at $3.5 billion

a year,

The Clinton campaign says Hillary Clinton

will resume normal activities Thursday

after she was reported to have pneumonia.

Clinton's poor health has some Democrats in a panic.

The president was standing in for her Tuesday

in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

What sets Hillary apart is that through it all

she just keeps on going.

And she doesn't stop caring, and she doesn't stop trying.

But Clinton needs to try to get well.

Because new data shows that eight weeks before election day

Republicans have gained ground in registering new voters

in the key battleground states of Florida,

North Carolina, and Arizona, and have maintained their lead

in Iowa.

And remarks by former Secretary of State

Colin Powell about both candidates

are back in the news.

Powell called Trump a national disgrace

in hacked emails obtained by DCLeaks.com.

He also wrote that he told Clinton staff repeatedly

not to try to blame him for her using a private computer

server for government business.

Clinton still faces congressional hearings

over her handling of classified emails.

The former State Department IT specialist

who set up Clinton's private server

ignored a subpoena to appear Tuesday before a House

committee hearing.

Others have pleaded the fifth.

That controversy along with her serious health issues

have clearly hurt Clinton in the polls, which

now show the race basically tied with less than two months

to go before the election.

In other news, a deadly attack on three police officers

has been caught on camera.

John Jessup has that story from our CBN News

bureau in Washington.

John?

Thanks, Gordon.

The three officers are recovering

from that shocking car attack.

Security video captured the whole thing,

which happened around 2:00 AM on Tuesday.

Two of the officers were hit while standing in the parking

lot of a convenience store.

The third officer jumped out of the way.

Phoenix's police chief said they were

the victims of a violent intentional attack.

One of the officers used a stun gun

to detain and arrest the driver, 44-year-old Marc LaQuon Payne.

He faces three charges of attempted first degree

murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

In prison, former Army intelligence analyst,

Chelsea Manning will undergo gender transition surgery.

This comes after Manning went on a hunger

strike that began Friday.

Manning is serving a 35-year sentence

for leaking more than 700,000 secret military and State

Department documents.

The Army said in July it will let openly transgender people

serve and pay for surgery tied to the condition

when necessary.

Well, the US and Israel have agreed

on a record 10-year military aid package.

The $38 billion deal is the largest, single largest,

rather, pledge of aid to any country in US history.

But it also includes major concessions

from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Among them, Israel will not ask for anything

from the US in the next 10 years beyond what's

already in the agreement.

It will also force Israel to spend more money in the US

than in previous agreements.

And that could hurt Israel's own military industry.

But with the agreement completed,

Israel won't have to worry about trying

to get a better deal from whomever

the next American president might be.
